Elderflower champagne!

Here's my contribution to Green Friday at Raindrops and Daisies!

This is our homemade Elderflower Champagne, from an old recipe found here. Perfect for a sunny day in the garden :-)

Today's entertaining Milly challenge:

Home-made paint!

Mix up 2tbs cornflour and a dollop of shampoo and pour into a muffin tin

Add food colouring and mix

Then, take all your clothes off, go into the garden and paint everything in sight!! If you're two, that is ;-)

I'll post the results tomorrow. I'm guessing the food colouring might take more than one wash to remove...

[Bath-tub paints idea found here]

Edit: Just in case anyone has the crazy-assed idea that I'd be able to look after three under-fives whilst intoxicated - I'm not! Not only am I on 24hr breastfeeding duty, but our elderflower champers is only vaguely alcoholic anyway :-)


  1. love that bottle in the sun! bet it tastes good, too!

  2. What a fantastic post.

    The painting recipe looks like brilliant fun
    a bath will definitely be needed later I'm sure!

    Love the green bottle too!!

    ~Thank you for linking up with Green Day.

    Have a wonderful weekend.

    1. Thanks for dropping by Olympia! :-) ...see below for what happened with the paints!

  8. I'm going to have to head over to see your colourful painted garden! Will catch you in the week...Tuesday maybe? x

  9. Guess what? Milly got bored after 2 minutes and poured water into all the paints till all the colour had gone.... I will never get my head round a kid being offered the chance to make loads of mess and then... not doing it!! Weird.... See you Tues Dot xx

    I am still competely lost....

    Your blog set up is so different to the rest of the blogs I follow
    which have a oogle follow button
    but this is very fancy (confusing)!!!

    Please let me know how to follow as I can't figure it out whatsoever
    and I would really like to be a follower.


    1. Hi Fiona - if you look on the right hand side there are buttons that kind of pop out when you hover on them: one of them is the normal oogle followers thingy ;-)

      So glad you'll be my 10th follower! I love your blog & like I said, every day is becoming a Green Day! x

  12. ... the buttons only pop out when you're on the 'home' page x

  13. Great green bottle, nice post ;)
